INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE SLEEP CONDITIONS DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What are sleep conditions during pregnancy?

Pregnancy disrupts sleep in several ways, due to changes in physiology, hormones, behavior, and the physical form of the body. This can lead to changes in quality and duration of sleep, resulting in various sleep abnormalities, including insomnia (difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep), awakenings during the night, and parasomnias (physical difficulties connected with sleep, such as restless legs syndrome), excessive sleepiness and narcolepsy (falling asleep all of a sudden when you don’t want to sleep),  disrupted circadian rhythms (sleep-wake cycle disturbance), snoring, and a problem with breathing during sleep called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
